Abstract The Lifting Plant and Equipment (Records of Test and Examination etc.) Regulations 1992 remove the requirement to report the results of tests of such equipment on prescribed forms and the requirement to provide a written report, thus allowing for the storage of test records by electronic means. This guidance provides a commentary on the Regulations and covers: contents of records; accuracy of particulars; authentication of records; modifications; savings provisions; revocations. Guidance is also given on safeguards for the use of electronic storage of test data.
